    Winemaker's Notes:

    60% Merlot with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

    The vines are on the plains, between Bolgheri and the town of La California. Temperature-controlled fermentation, manual punch-down and pumpovers. Aged one year in barrique and a minimum of six months in bottle. The wine has a warm, deep purplish-red color and aromas of Mediterranean wood. Its flavors of wild berries and juicy ripe cherries are balanced by spice notes, and an elegant structure and mellow mouthfeel.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lagone is a pleasurable and rich blend of Merlot, Cab Sauvignon, Cab Franc and Sangiovese that opens with rich, dark color and intense aromas of sweet spice, chocolate, cherry and tobacco. The wine feels chewy and smoot in the mouth with a long, velvety feel on the close.

    Wine Enthusiast

    A full, velvety and juicy red, delivering lots of Christmas pudding and dried fruit character on the nose and palate. Best after 2011. 12,500 cases made.
